US Census Tract Maps
You can easily create US Census Tract Maps using Mapline. Created by the Bureau of Census, census tracts are used to analyze populations. Thus, they are designed to follow people instead of political boundaries. These tracts usually have a population size between 2,200 and 8,000. These areas are located in census metropolitan areas with a core population of 50,000 or more. Census tracts are identified by an up to 4-digit integer number and may have an optional 2-digit suffix.
